Why Choose Us for Residential Mental Health Treatment?
Many years ago, our founder saw a need for better services and more personalized care within substance abuse and mental health treatment centers. The core natures and creative instincts of people were not being served to their fullest potential. The industry strives to do its best.
However, we still found that the elements of treating the whole person in physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being were not being discovered, and the outcomes provided insights into the results.
After many years of assessing and evaluating services, resources, treatment modalities, and programs, our founder discovered a more in-depth method of treating people struggling. Now in hopes of receiving better outcomes, TRUE is Joint Commission accredited and sets out to revive the heartbeat of recovery by motivating the communities to be a thriving source providing better resources for recovery.
TRUE has established a program that examines all four physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being elements. We leave you or your loved one in a position to strive for success, leaving no room for the possibility of compromise in life.
Our Residential Treatment Programs
Our treatment teams develop individualized programs and goals for each client. We understand that a program that works for one person will not meet the needs of another. From adolescents to adults, we meet each client where they are.
Sober Living Homes
Our sober living program is a significant next step after completing inpatient treatment at our facility. Sober living provides a safe and structured environment for sustained sobriety in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. Checking into a sober living home is ideal for using everything you learned in therapy.
We offer four levels of sober living. The National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) established these categories. Each has different variables like cost, level of monitoring, and clinical services available.
- Peer-run is informally composed of individuals who are friends or acquaintances in recovery. Peer-run homes allow the residents to set the rules. Rules can include house meetings, drug screenings, and a senior resident helping to hold other residents accountable.
- Monitored is typically in single-family homes or apartments. A senior resident can take on the responsibilities of a peer-run home but might also include house manager duties. This is usually a paid position. House meetings and drug screenings are generally mandatory, and house rules are often well-defined.
- Supervised facilities are usually licensed and feature organizational hierarchies, administrative oversight, and policies and procedures. Life skills development and clinical services are emphasized at our treatment facility. Staff are certified, and drug screenings are standard, along with other treatment options.
- Integrated services tend to be provided in a more institutional or clinical environment. Integrated sober living homes are often a transition from one of our primary treatment programs. Clinical services are provided in-house, emphasizing life skills development and effective treatment through behavioral healthcare. Staff are credentialed, and drug screening is mandatory and administered frequently.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) in Nashville, Tennessee, is an addiction treatment program that provides intensive individual, group, and family therapy, medication management, and support services to individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental illness and behavioral health issues daily.
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is our more intensive outpatient program. Also referred to as day treatment, our program operates during the day, allowing individuals to return home or to a sober living environment in the evenings. This level of care will enable individuals to continue to work, attend school, and participate in other activities while receiving treatment. PHP involves daily attendance for 30 total hours each week.
Our Residential Treatment Approaches
Treatment is the first step in changing the behaviors associated with a disruptive life, whether due to mental health issues or substance abuse. Individuals need medical support from professionals who understand their specific concerns.
The treatment team can develop individualized goals. Working collaboratively with each individual in our residential mental health facility, we can develop a plan beyond a standard model and create a personable and actionable set of guidelines instead.
Through proper medication and support, individuals with addiction can manage their symptoms and reduce the negative impact of impulsive control behaviors on their lives.
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) combines mindfulness and acceptance strategies. The idea behind ACT is to focus on helping individuals develop mental and emotional flexibility and avoid making risky decisions.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) makes individuals aware of attention and concentration problems. It improves their organization and time management. Our clients learn to break down tasks easier to manage their daily lives. CBT builds confidence and controls impulsive behavior. Individuals with BPD gain confidence and can control impulsive and risky behaviors.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) helps individuals participate in their therapy. Professionals recommend DBT as a treatment because it effectively combines CBT, mindfulness, and acceptance strategies. DBT teaches essential skills for managing emotions, impulsive behavior, and relationships. Individuals set goals, track progress, and make decisions about their treatment.
- Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) helps individuals understand unhelpful thoughts that can lead to negative emotions or behaviors. REBT focuses on the moment and what a person is feeling. Our therapists help you form new ways of approaching challenges, thoughts, and circumstances. The root of the adverse emotions is addressed so that self-sabotaging behavior can taper off.
- Family Therapy helps treat mental illness. It provides understanding, support, and education for family members. It strengthens relationships by addressing the impact of mental illness on family dynamics.
- Group Therapy is a respectful environment your therapist leads. It’s a way to hone your communication skills and learn from the stories of others. You become a better listener and think outside of yourself. Fellowship is vital in early recovery.
- Individual Therapy sessions are the time between just you and your therapist. You work through the personal aspects of your mental health disorder. You can focus on facing your challenges.
- Life Coaching works with clients to help them create a fulfilling and purposeful life. While therapists and counselors focus on addressing the psychological aspects of mental illness, our life coaches focus on practical strategies and skills to support clients in rebuilding their lives.
- Motivational Interviewing (MI) involves a non-judgemental and empathetic conversation with a therapist to help increase our clients’ motivation to change their behaviors. By exploring each individual’s values, goals, and concerns, the approach identifies and reinforces self-determination to begin making more positive changes.
- Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body. The therapist will determine where to place the needles based on individual needs. Once they do, the energy flow, known as Qi (pronounced “chee”), follows pathways throughout the body to restore balance and promote health and well-being.
- Animal therapy allows interactions between humans and animals to stimulate physical, emotional, cognitive, and social well-being. We use horses that are domesticated and trained for therapy purposes. We incorporate them into various therapeutic settings to facilitate positive outcomes for individuals.
- Art therapy can include drawing, painting, sculpting, and more. It promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, doesn’t require dialogue, and is a judgment-free safe space. Art therapy fosters self-reflection, self-discovery, and emotional release, allowing individuals to gain insight into their addiction triggers and underlying issues. By integrating art therapy into a treatment plan, individuals can develop healthier coping mechanisms and improve overall well-being.
- Movement therapy involves physical activities such as dance, fitness, or martial arts to support healing and recovery. It helps individuals express emotions, reduce stress, improve body awareness, and develop healthy coping strategies as part of their treatment.
- Music therapy uses music and its elements to assist with addiction recovery and mental health disorders. Music has a unique ability to stimulate emotions, bring up good memories, and boost relaxation. In music therapy, individuals engage in activities such as listening, playing instruments, singing, or composing music. These activities can help individuals express their feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide a healthy emotional outlet.
- Yoga is a therapeutic practice that alleviates the symptoms of addiction because of its positive impact on mental health. We combine physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to encourage our clients to be in the present. Yoga is a holistic approach to physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Types of Mental Health Disorders TRUE Treats
Anxiety causes individuals to worry and fear completing everyday tasks persistently. These individuals experience intense, persistent worry and fear that won’t quickly subside. Instead, individuals with an anxiety disorder have repeated episodes of sudden terror that can peak and result in a panic attack.
Co-occurring substance use disorder (SUD) is when a person has a mental health disorder. To cope with the symptoms, they begin to abuse substances. A dual diagnosis by a member of our mental health care team is essential to ensure effective treatment.
The most common mental health disorders that lead to SUD are:
- Anxiety and mood disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depressive disorder
- Conduct disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Some of the most common substances include the following:
- Prescription drugs
Depression is a consuming and debilitating mood disorder. It’s sometimes called major depressive disorder (MDD) or clinical depression. The disorder is prevalent. 29% of U.S. adults have a diagnosis of lifetime depression. 17.8% of this group are currently experiencing it. The mental health condition transforms how you feel, think, and act negatively.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is when individuals have obsessive thinking patterns, including unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that make them anxious or distressed. Other examples of OCD can include fear of contamination, doubts about completing a task, or thoughts of aggression. Individuals with OCD often have significant difficulty pushing away or ignoring these thoughts.
Personality disorders are mental health conditions represented by ongoing behavior pattern changes, lack of cognitive awareness, and turmoil of internal experiences. These characteristics usually do not align with society’s expectations of a stable quality of life. People with personality disorders experience distress and impairment that makes daily functions difficult. As a result, work, school, and personal obligations can suffer or be impossible to complete.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental illness health condition that individuals develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Those events can range from military combat, sexual abuse or assault, and natural disasters, to accidents. Individuals with PTSD may experience flashbacks, nightmares, changes in mood, and avoidance of certain social activities.
Suicidal ideation (SI) is the thoughts, feelings, and contemplation of self-harm or ending one’s life. Suicidal ideation can occur in any racial or ethnic background.
Several factors contribute to suicidal ideation:
- Systemic racism, racial profiling, and discrimination can lead to feelings of hopelessness. This can then lead to feeling devalued or marginalized.
- Experiencing racial violence, hate crimes, or microaggressions can contribute to thoughts of suicidal ideation.
- Historical trauma for generational marginalization and other forms of oppression can last decades after the fact for surviving members of the experience.
- Socioeconomic differences include access to subpar education, inequality when applying for and abstaining from higher-paying jobs, and inadequate access to proper healthcare.
- Being judged based on one’s physical appearance and presumed identifiers can also cause the onset of suicidal ideation.
